SouthWest Laser No. 5 for Kybella in the US

Whenever you’re considering an aesthetic treatment such as Kybella for the first time, it’s crucial that you are able to have confidence in who and what it is.

SouthWest Laser and MedSpa now ranks as the 5th medspa in the country for providing Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that eliminates any sign of a double chin.

Quite literally, Kybella mimics the natural deoxycholic acid your body produces, and our servicers apply it to the under-chin area to physically destroy the fat under the chin for a beautiful jawline.

“Kybella has quickly gained popularity with our clients because it is an effective, no fuss, low-impact treatment that offers a sleeker neckline and profile, diminishing the appearance of a ‘double chin’,” said one of our RN Injectors, Pam Neitzel.

Climbing to the No. 5 slot gives our clients added confidence that they can trust us to get them the results they are looking for with minimal to no downtime for the procedure. We’re so proud of our team of injectors! They have undergone rigorous training to ensure our patients receive the best care and experience the best results!

How Kybella works

KYBELLA® is given during a series of in-office visits. The injection treatment may take roughly15 to 20 minutes. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through the body’s natural metabolic pathways.

For best results, clients may need 2 to 4 treatments, but we’ll give you a consultation to help you get a good idea of what your specific needs are.

Who is a candidate for Kybella?

If you experience submental fullness, a.k.a. the “double chin”. It’s a good fit for both men and women. The prescription treatment is available for those 18 and older. Some possible causes of submental fullness are genetics, weight gain and aging.

Why Kybella?

Even with diet or exercise, unwanted fullness beneath the chin may not go away, and it can make a person appear older or heavier than they actually are. Plus, this is one of the quickest, most low impact, and painless procedures available with outstanding results.

According to a 2015 survey by the American Cancer Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), more than two thirds of aesthetic oriented consumers are bothered by submental fullness — nearly as many as those bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
